This set is intended to accompany a study of The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka. I created this product as a way to tie math into my yearly study of one of my favorite stories of all time.
A fun story sets up the mystery and then students must solve 6 clues (story problems) to figure out the identity of the pie thief!
Included in this set:
*The Case of the Missing Pie: A Pig's Tale Written by Casey Turner
*Thief Prediction Sheet
*6 Clue Sheets (Story Problems)
*2 Written Response Sheets
*Gingerbread Man Pattern
This lesson can be completed in an afternoon or you could solve one clue each day as a class or place the activity in a math or literacy tub. The story problems can be solved by second graders of varied ability levels and are not intended to be challenge. This means that all of the students will be able to join in the fun!
I would also recommend reading The Gingerbread Man at some point prior to this activity. ;)
